that would vote against it because he is a fairly conservative republican. host: he will be replacing jim demint in the senate, who is stepping down. jim demint, one of three that did not vote last night. guest: i do not know if that means he was not here, or he abstained. i imagine he could not have voted to support this. host: donna, independent caller. caller: my concern is that i am basically lost in the cracks. i was a hard worker, paid my taxes, i had an accident, and now i have cancer. i get my medicare, but still i am having to pay for more insurance. my social security check went up, but i have to pay the high price of medical care because of the bills, and it is not fair because i can not get supplemental insurance to help me pay for my disease. i do not think it is fair enough to where i am lost in the crack, and i can barely make it. all of my money goes directly to medical costs. about i'm sorry to hear that, if a tragedy, but she points out the problem. when you go after 2% of the taxpayers and small businesses to fix the problems better on our shoulders, it is picking the w
changed with in the room. >> jim of cnn sends out this week. -- tweet. how could the senate passed this 89-8 and yet it is so hard to get it done in the house? >> this is not the first time this has happened. there was a payroll tax cut extension. when you are elected, you have voters from all over the state. you have a lot of people with similar views about the world. when you are talking to your base back home, that is the way it works. one house member, a republican, was saying he had to watch out for his own voters more than the electorate in general. >> thank you for holding. you are on the air. >> hello. i want to know why he. i worked at a company for five years. i am unemployed now. i am getting unemployment. hi husband doesn't work. it was a single family income. i want to know and understand how a cameo -- can you try to raise everyone's taxes and make the poor and like me -- and i am struggling to keep my home right now. nobody wants to come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff. >> i saw a report by the washington post that 71% of people will have their taxes raised by this deal?
gone up. guest: i guess that's one way to look at it, sure. host: let's go to floral city, florida. jim on the republicans line. caller: good morning. i don't so much have a question but a comment. i feel that most of the conversation in washington is about money and it's more, more, more, more. they're going to waste every dime they get. so the problem i consider is that they have too much money. not that they have too little. they don't need more. if we were to update our computer system we could probably do 60% to 70% of our governmental business on a computer and let the people run it instead of our bureaucrats. it just makes no sense. i've only heard just a very few words regarding the fact that they spend too much money. guest: we do. we spend too much money. and unfortunately you're absolutely right. we don't hear that enough and for that reason that was the reason we got the compromise last night. enough people are willing to look the other way on the spending. again, i understand the folks who voted for it. both democrats and republicans alike. they don't want to go over the cl
now so who wants to ask a question. >> in the back. >> thank you. jim, washington post. a justice breyer, thank you for those remarks. i wonder from your visits to china your conversations with the students there and the officials if you have a sense that we are on a path where an independent judiciary can be formed in a system that is ruled by the communist party that puts other values much more on the supreme level than the ones that you are citing do you have a sense that the party is willing to make the kind of compromises that essentially would put it out of business? >> u.s. to be a question i can't answer so far as you are talking about the party because i don't we have an entire generation of students that was my impression the kind of rule law and the values that are in our constitution as worthwhile and important to. the value becomes one at least because it is now just a question are what of the means and what can you see as people start thinking about these means, and people eventually -- and some article with me there is no dictatorship or what ever is so awful and i
for this country. host: we move on to jim in fort myers, fla. caller: thank you for taking my call. what is your suggestions to solve these problems? are you still for the electoral college system? how will you improve the campaign financing? i would like to hear what you thought after all of your research. guest: there are a few different ways to go. i do not advocate a particular policy position, but there are some implications. in terms of fund-raising, it is a result of low contribution limits, with rapidly rising campaign costs. if you favor the public system, you will want to revamp its note it offers a larger pool -- so it offers a larger pool to opt in. that would limit the amount of time presidents have to campaign. you might see the problem is the contribution limit. contribution limits on the amount of money you can give are small relative to the amount of money it takes to run a campaign. you might say to raise the contribution limits. with the electoral college, if it were abolished and we elect our presidents through a national popular vote, you could have a lively debate. voters i
them and companies of tomorrow will not get the funds they need to jim walton of walmart four million from dividends. they are top guys pulling the money out. when you look at investment dollars. we have seen so much fluxation in the stock market. stuart varney said it was an effort to cash out some of the money because they don't know what is happening next year. it proves the basic point. you raise taxes you are not raising revenues. most people will respond to thes . they are not sure and look at walmart. it is the walton family that is the richest family in the united states. they initially planned dividend pay out for january 2nd . uncertainty about the fiscal cliff. they are moving up it is yet another example of how we get around this. i would point out when companies are not paying out the dividends, it means we get waste we don't like. instead they spend on offices and private jets and otherwise they might have distributed those funds much >> yes. john tamny, have a great new years. >> and coming up on the show . how late is too late to get your kids eating right? >> and othe
, the judiciary committee on which i serve heard dramatic testimony from former deputy attorney general jim comby about the efforts of chief of staff andrew card and counsel alberto gonzalez to pressure attorney general john ashcroft some into reauthorizing this surveillance of american citizens while ashcroft was in the hospital. after "the new york times" revealed the existence of warrantless surveillance program, the bush administration demanded the congress pass legislation authorizing it. this led to enactment of the fisa amendments in 2008. in short, this legislation was born in original sin. congress added some oversight requirements and civil liberties protection to the bush administration's warrantless surveillance program but they didn't go far enough. that's why i opposed the original fisa amendments act along with a majority of democratic senators. i supported an earlier version offered by senator leahy, chairman of our judiciary committee, which would have authorized broad surveillance powers but included civil liberties protections. back in 2008, the bush administration accused oppo
jim bunning, objected to the extension of unemployment benefits. we wanted to extend them for literally millions of americans and he stood on his desk on the republican side and said i object. and then sat down. that was tend of the story. that was really the end of the debate. and so i went to the floor and i said i just want to give society notice to the senator from kentucky i'm going to renew that request every half so he'd better return to the floor because he has to object every time. and this was late at night. and we mobilized a number of people in the cloakroom and came to the floor and kept it going and finally he got up and complained he was missing the university of kentucky basketball game on television because of this. and i thought several million people are missing unemployment benefits because of this, too. so that is in the nature of what you're trying to achieve. if there is something important enough to stop the course of the senate activity, to stop the business of the senate, then you should be prepared to be on the floor and argue your case. and brin
